    Once a month, speak conversational English in one of our ESL classes or at our "English Cafe".

    Help women preparing to take the US Citizenship exam with mock interviews.

    Volunteer in one of our computer classes, working with small groups of students as they learn Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

    Care for the children of our adult education students while mom is in class in one of our childcare centers. We encourage weekly or biweekly commitments so the children enjoy stability and feel comfortable with the volunteers.
